A couple of weeks ago a very handsome man who carries a Cheep-O Schrade folder from Walmart asked this same question. Who was he? I remember that the ladies loved him. [;)]

Didn't know we just did this, and Bob next time you get a rope tangle round your arm are you goin to shoot it off? I carry a gun also, but a knife is just a little more useful in crowded areas. Ice

Yep. Ice, we just did this topic not too long ago. Anyway I posted that I carry a 3" spyderco with a belt clip for everyday carry and for practical use. And I carry a Ginzu knife(yeah, that is thee knife on the commercial that slices/chops/dices/peels and yada yada yada) when I go out to eat sushi made by Sushi Chefs in Da Hoodz where they flash their knives at people sideways like gangbangers do when they aim their Glocks.

Gerber 800 Multi-Plier on the belt. Just replaced Gerber folder with a brand new Benchmade 721. No comparison.

A Remington boot knife and a Camillus boot knife.

Emerson-designed Benchmade CQC7, left hand, tanto blade half serrated. Rides in the left front pocket, and is open before it gets anywhere NEAR a useful position... THe half settated blade is useful for MVA response - goes thru seatbelt webbing in a nuge hurry, and also makes short work of tough clothing as necessary... I usually have a Swisschamp and a Gerber Multi-Plier somewhere nearby for detail work... FFZ

my benchmade is just as fast if not faster! once you learn the lock on it you have no need for a auto!!
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 2:37:57 PM EDT
Autos are slick until one hops out of your hand. I prefer thumb openers. I agree they are just as fast with practice. Hunter out...

Columbia River M16-14LE. Big, sharp, liner-lock folder with a tanto blade. -Andy

Ice, I don't pack a knife for defense, but I do carry a leatherman on my belt, and a small swiss army knife on my keychain. -bob

Beanchmade Mini Stryker Elishewitz Design. One sharp puppy, also got a FA version but carry the manual version as I'm not a cop. Also have the full size stryker but I feel it is a little too big for my daily carry. Great knives. Bill Happiness is a warm gun... Bang bang, shoot shoot...

You bet. Al Mar auto sear. Mini-Leatherman on my key ring So how about sharpeners? I use DMT diamond rods (can't find them anymore), ceramic rods and diamond Lansky's.
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 4:00:41 PM EDT
Benchmade Stryker with the combo edge, just a great all-around knife. I just thought it was common sense that a good knife is the perfect compliment to your sidearm, and is a hell of a lot more useful in a lot of situations.

I carry a Victorinox Matterhorn every day. I really like the small pliers and the serrated edge on the large blade. I use a deluxe Lansky to sharpen everything. I took it along with me during Chrismas to my parent's cause my Mom complined to me that all her knives were dull. After I got done with them, she was scared to use them cause she said they were too sharp now. Go figure.

Gerber Rex Appplegate folder and or a Leatherman.

My favorite CQC is Spyderco 3" Endura half serrated with a custom made belt clip (original clip broke) but I wore the blade down to a nub so I decided to try the S&W S.W.A.T. 3.75" blade, half serrated. The S&W is a little big and a lot slower to open when compared to the spyderco which I could manipulate rather quickly. For utility I used to carry a SOG multi pliar but it sucked so bad I threw it in the trash and found a Schrade TOUGH multipliar in a pawn shop for the paltry sum of $15. :) This tool is awesome!

Benchmade AFO Auto...Drop point, half serrated.

I used my Cold Steel Voyager Tanto to dig a 12ga. slug out of a car bumper yesterday. It goes everywhere with me and would be my first choice if I thought my Glock 30 would be too loud for the job. Cold Steel Recon Tanto on my LBE.

Cold Steel Voyager with Tanto point. I carry it everywhere. I am in a transitional phase though and I have ordered an El Vaquero Grande. 6 inch serrated blade. Someone mentioned in an earlier reply about not carrying a knife to a gun fight. I think the knife makes a good common sense back up to the gun while providing more versatility for everyday life. Ever tried to shoot your way out of a jammed seatbelt after a fender bender / accident? Its not that easy. :)
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 7:12:59 PM EDT
i agree that thumbknob folders are as good as auto's in practice, but autos have a sort of cool factor. mine is pretty cool, but its not the toughest knife i ever saw.
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 7:45:53 PM EDT
I carry a Benchmade Stryker and a Leatherman Wave.

Four different Spydercos depending on mood, from Police model serrated, left hand blade, on down.
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 8:06:20 PM EDT
For me it is a Benchmade combo blade ATS-34 with the belt clip. Super smooth opening with either right or left hand. Super freakin sharp and no nonsense design. Opens lickedy split either by thumb or wrist flick!! This is my carry/work/skinnin/pryin/what-the-hell-ever knife!! It took me awhile to part with the funds to buy it, but I have not regreted it for a single sec!! DK

I usually carry a Emerson Commander or CQ7 for most days and my custom made "defensive spike" for dress up occasions.

For everyday use I carry on my keychain a Cold Steel Voyager medium Tanto point. For the woods I have on my side a Cold Steel Recon Tanto. I watched the video and tried one of their don't do demonstrations on a wrecked chevy caprice police car in our yard with the recon tanto, I punched through the trunk lid with it but it stopped half way. I opened the trunk lid and it went through the outer skin and the inner support. Still shaved hair off my arm but a little rough, not as smooth as it used to, guess I'll have to sharpen it. For hunting I just bought a Cold Steel Master Hunter, can't wait till I try it out. For the urban scene I have a Cold Steel El Vaquero, don't usually carry it though, to big. I should have gotten a 4" version instead of 5". My two cents. Dan

My everyday carry sport-utility knife is a S&W "us army" auto knife. Benchmade is a lot better quality knife, but also costs twice as much. The S&W has taken more beatings than any knife I have ever owned, and aside from some finish wear is as good as the day I bought it, so I won't complain about it. As far as in the field I take it with me clipped on my pocket. I can ditch my ruck and vest and still have a knife and a pistol. I don't take a knife to a gunfight either but I take a bayo for the M4. Why? Just because I can, but I have never used it for anything.
